MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Transcend Inc. recently introduced Transcend Micro, the world’s smallest and lightest portable continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device. Weighing under a half pound and measuring less than four inches, Transcend Micro is designed to make it more convenient for people who suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea to maintain their sleep apnea therapy at home or when traveling.
“When we designed the new Transcend Micro, we didn’t want to simply introduce another portable CPAP. We challenged ourselves to deliver a CPAP device that reflects the lifestyle and preferences of today’s users,” said William Brown, Chief Financial Officer at Transcend. “Small, portable, convenient, customizable, and smart are benefits and features most people want from their device. The new Transcend Micro checks all those boxes, from the smooth design to add-on accessories and smart features such as the Bluetooth functionality that allows users to track their sleep therapy data via a mobile app.”
Since launching, the Transcend Micro has received positive feedback from many travel CPAP users. One of the first Transcend Micro users, Michelle D., commented, “When I received the Transcend Micro, I was surprised by its size, weight, and performance. I decided to use my Transcend Micro on a fabulous backpacking trip through Germany, Spain, and Morocco. I enjoyed restful, restorative sleep every night for a month on vacation. I loved it!”
The Transcend Micro features quiet operation, Bluetooth functionality, auto-adjusting pressure, and air pressure relief. Users of the Transcend Micro also have the flexibility to add comfort accessories, including the new Transcend WhisperSoft™ muffler for acoustic sound reduction and the Transcend AirMist™ HME (Heat Moisture Exchanger) for waterless humidification.
Unique among travel CPAPs, the Transcend Micro is compatible with any CPAP mask so people can use their existing mask or purchase their preferred style. Lastly, like the previous generation of Transcend portable CPAPs, the Transcend Micro can be powered by a travel-size battery, making it a preferred choice for any sleep apnea patients with active lives who have been unable to rely on their CPAP in travel situations.
Transcend Micro is only available in the United States. Visit mytranscend.com for more information about Transcend Micro.
